We’ve seen several special editions introduced by Audi and dedicated to a specific market. China seems to be the most attractive place to debut limited editions mainly considering the fast growing market.
In this case, the Germans at Audi presented the R8 Limited Edition, a model which comes with an exclusive Cool Nordic Gold finish and few other styling tweaks.
From the list we note the 19-inch alloy wheels, black and grey inserts, a carbon fiber rear wing and side mirrors. Of course, power is provided by the same 5.2-liter engine producing 525 horses and 530Nm of torque.
The V10 powerplant is linked to a new R-Tronic transmission which makes the 0-100 km/h acceleration possible in 3,9 seconds.
At the interior, Audi offers new door handles, leather seats, a revised aluminum gear knob and new trim matching the exterior finish. With only 30 units to hit the road, the Audi R8 Limited Edition starts at 2,628,000 Yuan which is the equivalent of $422,800.
